Missing Mystery Driver is Scaring People for a Study
HOW and WHY is this ghost vehicle driving around without a driver...
Well allegedly, the mystery is sort of solved?
A van that appeared to have no driver made headlines when it was spotted in Arlington, Virginia, last week.
Apparently, if you look inside this vehicle you will see that it did in fact have a driver: a man dressed in a costume made to look like just a car seat.
However, from the road, the unmarked gray van eerily looks like it's moving without a driver. The entire front seat looks empty.
This is one of the strangest things I've ever seen @nbcwashington @ARLnowDOTcom pic.twitter.com/8ipKEnkeiq — Adam Tuss (@AdamTuss) August 7, 2017
As we all question: "Why, just why..."
Virginia Tech Transportation Institute said Monday afternoon that the van and van driver are part of a study they are conducting on driverless cars. The worker was wearing the uniform he was supposed to wear.
There you have it.... A new technology in the works.
